#startup #entrepreneur
Most days browsing the web I come across new startups. From the brand new to the nearly IPO level beasts, they often do a great job of enticing me. Sleek and bleeding-edge website designs, oddball names and promises of greatness are often the catalysts for making me take notice. But being of the SEO persuasion I …

Just when you thought crowdfunding was a lean bootstrapping tool... comes the IRS.

It turns out we need accountants to figure out the tax liabilities we incur being successful crowdfunders.

I think the unintended consequence is to push bootstraps like us to ask the following question:

Should I think about offshoring my crowdfunding campaign?

Sigh.
Campaigns on sites like Kickstarter can help a small business get started. But the complex income and sales tax reckoning can come as a surprise.

Hey there,

For our new start-up I'd love to hear some more feedback.

It is a software that allows 3rd parties to create variations of any web page based on a specific profile created by the page owner.

Every variation will get their unique short URL that will forward to the original URL and the changes will also be shown on the original URL to only the visitors coming from that specific skin short URL.

The goal is to allow 3rd parties (e.g. affiliates) to fine-tune and customize any sales and landings pages to perfectly match their traffic and even go so far as endorse the product on the sales page. If allowed by the site owner 3rd parties can add / changes headlines, bullet lists, videos, images and even add power tools like top notification bar, countdown timers, pop-up modals, exit intent catcher and more.

The current launch page:
https://affiliatesk.in/launch

Love to hear your feedback!

About this community

This is not a general "entrepreneurship" community. Please DO NOT get banned by flogging us with articles that are clearly sales pitches for your PR/SMM agency. We are lean startup people who build innovative sites, software, sites, goods and services. We share what is working for us and team up, build and launch innovative projects. Let's support each others' startups, contribute on each others' hangouts on air workshops, events, crowdsourcing campaigns, and when there's a good fit, team up and build MVPs faster.
 
Over the past 5 years or so, I have been learning about how #musicians  can use #socialmedia  effectively and I am also learning about how other people and #businesses  can apply similar techniques to promote their services and products. If any of you would like some help, I'd be happy to talk to you.

The word is tossed around rather loosely these days, so it's worth it to dig into what it really means for Japanese #startups, and the Japanese economy as a whole.

Alright! So most internet start ups require a website but hiring a professional developer is fairly expensive. Here's an excellent find on ProductHunt. StackHive, a cloud based web development tool offers a visual layer which writes perfect CSS for you in the background. I've stacked (excuse the pun) it up against similar tools and this comes out on top. With live coding and absolute control over the code, website design and development time is drastically reduced. Try it out and let me know what you think.
